>From what I have read, the President is not basing his support of the FMA on the Full Faith & Credit problem, but rather to provide national "clarity" on the meaning of civil marriage. Here is what he said according to the Wash Post:
"After more than two centuries of American jurisprudence and millennia of human experience, a few judges and local authorities are presuming to change the most fundamental institution of civilization."
He also specifically said that he wants to stop activist judges from changing the definition of the "most enduring human institution."
